The music world lost Harry Nilsson 24 years ago today. He was only 52 years old. Harry’s one of those artists that we could go on for days about, talking about his song writing for The Monkees, or his antics with Alice Cooper’s “Hollywood Vampires” and so, so much more.
To show you the respect that Harry got, When John Lennon and Paul McCartney held a press conference in 1968 to announce the formation of Apple Corps, Lennon was asked to name his favorite American artist. He replied, “Nilsson”. McCartney was then asked to name his favorite American group. He replied, “Nilsson”
We had the pleasure to work with Harry on a couple of occasions. We emphasize the word ‘Pleasure’.
What is the first song of his that comes to your mind when you hear his name?
RIP Harry. Thank you for the music.
